Like a trip to the antique store. Images, artifacts, and stories of life in the University District in Columbus, Ohio from the past 150 years and much, much more.

The Coliseum at the Ohio State Fair Grounds, 1918.
Over the decades, this busy building has hosted everything. Ohio State University graduations, swing dances, religious extravaganzas, rock concerts, military ceremonies, high school basketball tournaments, professional wrestling, minor league hockey, and monster truck shows have all found a home here.
During Fair Week, the Coliseum hosts equestrian events and provides a shady spot for fair-goers to sit a bit.
The 159th Ohio State Fair is currently underway.
